Patient Comments (4)
Dr King is Excellent!! Can't say enough good about him!! The office staff is another story! They - Lauren especially - are extremely unprofessional, rude and such behavior only adds to patient discomfort when they/she hides behind policy which benefits them and does not keep the care of the patient in mind. Lauren is quick to brush your concerns aside. Would hate - absolute hate - losing Dr. King as my doctor but the hurdle of the office staff is almost too much to experience at times

Dr. King has been a revelation. He is firm but gentle in his approach and is well-regarded in Nyack Hospital across the spectrum of staff. And to the patient knocking Dr. King about leaving him high and dry... Doctor's don't make the rules about controlled substances. Direct your ire towards big pharma and your legislator's. Doctor's don't make policy. Their job is to abide by it.

Very nice

Was seeing Dr. King for over a year to treat anxiety and depression. My lady appointment he handed me a paper saying he can't RX controlled substances anymore because he is being investigated by NY state. Now I'm screwed, can't find a doctor who will take my insurance and I will run out of meds in 3 weeks. He really left me hanging.
